April Reading Details


Hey Fan People,

Join us Tuesday Night for another great installment of Writers and Words:

Mike Shattuck: After securing an English lit degree, Mike Shattuck worked as a system analyst in the era when you could land a tech job just by knowing how to spell HTML. A few years ago, he fully decided to pursue writing part-time. His writing has been published by Ink Press and has appeared in Short, Fast, and Deadly. He is from Baltimore and has spent three quarters of his life there so far.

Michelle Dwyer religiously keeps a diary and writes about her life as a Karaoke DJ and Private Investigator in Baltimore. You can read about her not-so-secret life as the former owner of a Thrift Shop in her humorous book of essays, JUNK DRUNK. Current writing projects include a 33 ⅓ Simon & Garfunkel proposal and an interactive journal about growing out her hair.

Steve Matanle is the author of a collection of poems, Nightbook, published by Passager Books.

He is also a painter and a playwright. He teaches at the University of Baltimore in the MFA program in Creative Writing & Publishing Arts, and the undergraduate English program.

Kendra Kopelke is the author of four collections of poetry, including Hoppers Women, a series of poems based on the paintings of Edward Hopper. She also is a founding editor of Passager Books, a journal and press for older writers. She directs the University of Baltimore’s MFA in Creative Writing & Publishing Arts.

Zines and books will be on sale. The April Zine will be $5 and all previous month’s Zines will be $3. If you’d like to reserve a copy of a previous month, please let us know at
